Greetings friends, I have a question for you, I hope you can help me.

I am starting to take commissions to repaint heads, my level is good, not reaching the level of hot toys. My problem is that I do not know how much to charge for the commission, I understand that it depends a lot on the scope that my client requests, but I would like to know your opinion, how much would be correct?

Also, be aware if you start charging high sums of money, you may not get the business you think you will. Very few people in this hobby can afford to spend hundreds for just a paint job, but they might be willing to spend a hundred or less. Darren Carnell (in the Uk) has skills that far exceed Hot Toys, but he charges $500 USD per head sculpt, and it takes years to get your stuff back! I’ve seen guys do pretty reasonable work and only charge $60-75 USD for their work, and Their turnaround is less than a week. If your interested in honing your skills and want more work to get that practice in, lower pricing to start may be a better option — as your skills rise, so can the rate you charge. The choice, of course, is yours as stated.
